It’s the 14th Where’s My Update???? (UPDATED…Again…and Again…last updated 1/15/14 9am EST)

Jan14TSTOUpdate

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers,

So we’ve been seeing quite a few questions in the comments this morning all pertaining to….WHERE’S THE NEW UPDATE?!!  So I figured I’d take a few minutes to give you the skinny on the update/Christmas removal/Married to the Blob Episode Tie-In removal…whew not so skinny huh?

UPDATE 9:00AM EST 1/15/14: For those Tappers needing help with the “NOT MY TOWN” Glitch, Friend Management (iOS Devices) & those who did not update their device out of Christmas in hopes to get the last of the Christmas items…we now have 3 posts dedicated to those three things.  Here’s where you can find them:

-If you’ve logged into TSTO after updating and realized “HEY THIS ISN’T MY TOWN!  WHERE’S MY SPRINGFIELD?!!!!”   Check out this Troubleshooting Post from Bunny (she’s wearing her nerdy glasses in this one!)

-If you’re playing on iOS and are noticing all the changes to adding friends, deleting friends & how Origin looks in TSTO now…check out this post for all the ins, outs and how-tos of managing Origin in iOS now. 

-And finally…if you haven’t yet updated out of Christmas (in hopes to get those last few items) and are looking for friends to help you that also haven’t updated out of Christmas check out this post.   

Hopefully that helps you all with the 3 biggest issues facing Tappers in the last 24 hours!  OH and if you’ve looking for wheel spin advice and tips check out this post from our wonderful readers with methods that have worked for them! 

Here’s hoping for an actual new content update today!

UPDATE 1:30PM EST (although I forgot to hit update post until 2:20pm) : Ok tappers by now we all know the update has hit our devices but (for now) it’s Christmas/Snow removal.  Kind of a let down…I know.  But something is coming…and will be coming soon.  So once it does we’ll have you covered.  Continue reading

Hey Addicts, Caption This!

What’s up guys and dolls?  Alissa scheduled this and I thought it’d be fun to show her I picked the lock on the attic.  This week’s submission has me rolling on the floor laughing my proverbial donkey off.  I love all the images you hilarious readers keep sending us.  It’s so refreshing that in a community of “addicts”, there’s not a boring nut among you.  Ok… I’m at danger of rambling so let’s return to your normally scheduled post.

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather weird things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments! Once a week we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

A Bont Of Friendship? A Bunny TOO Obsessed!

Christmas Morning 2013, we were given another mini task into the game. This one involved those that had purchased Hank Scorpio and his lair. The dialog was as follows…

A Bont of Friendship 1

The task lasted 6hrs with a reward of 35 Gift Cards & 90XP

A Bont of Friendship 2

Now the interesting part was this…

A Bont of Friendship 3

So I sat here…on January 6th, 4:00:00 GMT…waiting and hoping that maybe another little surprise would hit our Springfield. It was worth a shot, right? In the meantime, the rest of the dialog…

A Bont of Friendship 4

So…time ticked away…and…NOTHING!

Dangit. This is what happens when you are an Addict. You obsess over EVERYTHING in the game. (I know a bunch of you were obsessing too. Don’t lie.) Lol.

I was soooo hoping for some commotion in Springfield, but alas…just another script. Oh well, it was still a funny lil mini quest.

A Fatty New Year 2D

So here we are at the end of 2013. So much has happened and changed in my life in this 12 month span. I really look forward to see what the next 12 months have in store for me. It could get interesting.

I know it has been a while since I have done a 2D. Sorry about that. Been busy hopping all over the country from one side to another. My poor 2D creativity was just ITCHING to come out and play.

WDTCF- Mr. Costington & His Store

Now a days, every town has to have that MAJOR high end mall type store. The one that is full of anything and everything you need. And if you don’t think you need it, they will make sure you leave thinking you did. Lol.

The store is very reminiscent of the Macy’s & Gimble’s type places from “Miracle on 34th Street”. It is located in Downtown Springfield, Hosts the towns Thanksgiving Day Parades, and has many familiar employees…like Gil and the Yes Guy. The owner, well you never know what to quite make of him. At one moment he seems so kind, at others…a very grumpy old man.

So what store is this? Who is the owner? Well, the title should have given you a clue. It is Costington’s. So without further ado, I will break down the origin of Costington’s, Mr. Costington, and just where they came from in the Simpsons TV World.

Tick Tock Tick Tock Time Is Running Off The Clock

Do you know what time it is? Well I hope if you were wanting to take advantage of Ol’ Gils Christmas Donut Deal, that you are going to be doing it REALLY soon.

As of EA’s clock…6AM PST on 12/31/2013, Gil’s Deal will be ended. It is not often at all that the precious donuts are offered at such discounts. So for those of you procrastinating, I would suggest go and get that boatload NOW!!!

You have just over 12hrs left from now to make that decision. Mmmmmmm donuts.

WDTCF- YES Guy

Well look at what we got here. There is a character that seems to continually reoccur as an employee at pretty much any job possible that is now in our game. Do you know who I am talking about?

The man that I am speaking of is referred to as the “Yes Guy” for the crazy way he always says yes. “Eeeh-Y-e-e-e-es?”. I just love this guy. I think it is due to just how obnoxious he is. They way he talks. It reminds me of some old shows I watched with my Gramms in black and white with the guy desperate to sale you anything, so he makes EVERYTHING sound like it is the best deal you are getting. He is essentially kissing your behind the entire time. I loved watching those old reruns of Jack Benny and I Love Lucy with her. The actor he was made in honor of, Frank Nelson, was a riot to watch. You should check out some of his work and see just why the Yes Guy came about.
